1. Do not assume that DU from Davey Crockett spotting rounds is the ONLY DU used at the various sites. There could be lots more DU from other various DU rounds in the US arsenal and DU used in ballast.  Will you investigate this?.

2. Should not testing for DU oxide particles be done down wind of the known ranges and suspected impact sites? Comprehensive testing and monitoring –air filters, etc.?

3.  The US spends $32 million dollars per minute on war.  When will comprehensive independent testing and monitoring be done at all DU sites to determine the full extent of DU oxide contamination?

4.  Does not the military continued bombing with high explosives on bases known to be contaminated with Depleted Uranium constitute unethical human experimentation of troops who train at such bases and the civilian populations that surround such bases?

5.  Why isn’t the Army being reuired to follow their own regulations on handling Depleted Uranium including AR 700-48 Section 2-4 to prevent the spread of radiation contamination and and regulations DA PAM 700-48 and AR 40-5?

You are receiving this email because in the past you have expressed interest in NRC’s efforts on regulating depleted uranium on firing ranges. 

On Friday, May 31, at 2 p.m. EDT, NRC will hold a webinar to present our plan to confirm that depleted uranium is under appropriate regulatory oversight at firing ranges.  NRC will not be focusing on specific sites during this discussion, but we will be discussing NRC’s planned efforts to confirm that DU is under appropriate regulatory oversight.  You can register to join the webinar at this link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2860934052085185283

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank You.
